Mr. Martins Moore,
Manager Account/Audit Department,
Union Bank Of Nigeria Plc,
Union Bank Marina Branch.

Hello My Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Martins Moore senior manager accounts/audit Department, with Union
Bank of Nigeria Plc.

Dr.George Brumley Jr, who was a consultant with Nigeria Research Institute of
Neonatal-Perinatal Research and a personal friend Died and left behind his
deposit in my bank UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC valued $20 Million Dollars.

My relationship with Dr. George started in year 2000 when I was a supervisor in
Union Bank Marina Branch.

We met in my social club annual end of the year party and I introduced him to
my bank where he opened this account some few weeks later making me the account
officer to the account and he operated this account until his death.

On the 19th of July 2003, Dr.George, his wife and their two children were
involved in a plane crash in Nairobi Kenya. All passengers of the plane
unfortunately lost their lives.

Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of
Dr.George's extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. To prevent
the bank to claim this money I know decided to contact anybody from your
country, I decided to contact you via your email address with hope to get this
money out of the bank.

This is the web site of this tragedy that struck on that faithful day.

I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by
Dr.George before they get confiscated since the bank has declared the account
unserviceable for it's been more than 6 Years since he last operate this
account. I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives since I was
re-called back to Marina Branch as a senior manager from a transfer that took me
to another branch of the bank. I therefore seek your consent to present you as
the next of kin of the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account valued at
m$20 Million Dollars can be paid to your account abroad and then you can have
30% of the money for your kind gesture and keep the other 60% for me and 10% for
expenses procure, I Will need to travel down to your country for the collection
of the 60% balance as soon as this fund get to you.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction
through, of which we must present a foreigner with an account abroad to enable
us to clear this money from the bank.

Your contact information are very necessary, I mean your home address, phone
number and your full name.

Full Name:
Mobile Number:
Home Number:

I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will
protect you from any breach of the law.

Best Regards,
Mr.Martins M.
